'Temple Run: Oz' by Disney (Universal) $1.99 > Free

"Free" (there are "In-App Purchases" for real money) for the first time.

Quote from the iTunes iOS App Store (user review):

Game is fun to play and extremely addictive. I was really excited that they did an update because I was hoping... no, praying that they finally fixed the glitches. So I tested it out and the game still crashes when I reach about 18 million points! Please please fix this problem, because I would like to finally finish the 25 million challenge and the 100 million challenge!
From the main TA thread (80 postings):

The only thing that TR2 has better than TROz is the variety of character skins.

TROz is an upgrade of what made TR2 great, so yeah, it's better.

Yeah this is a good runner title if you like the genre. There's not much in terms of innovation, but it does almost everything right.

The only real downside is that Temple Run 2 overtook this for me for having non-stop updates. TROz needed some more additions too, but i guess that may be in Disney's hand now and not Imangi's.

.....aaaaaaaaaand TR2 just added a st patrick's update (last month was Bruce Lee with VDay). More reason to play with the new collectibles. TROz never got this much love from Disney.
